That skin is awesome! Ordered it mainly as sun protection, but used it as a swimmimg suit since it arrived, and even for it's intended purpose as a dressing aid for a wetsuit. It totally convinced me in all occasions. Sun protection in the glaring sun, while keeping me comfortably (and at the end of the day I was the only one who didn't use sunscreen and was the only one who didn't get sunburned), quick drying when used as a swimsuit, just towel off, wait a moment and you are dry, plus it is so easy putting on your wetsuit with it, even if the suit still is damp from the previous dive. Also it was the first time I could wiggle out of my wetsuit all by myself, without my buddy having to pull the suit down from my shoulders. And on top of all of this, it really looks stylish, so you really feel comfortable roaming around in it at the beach, or even on your way to it. An absolute must-have!
I bought the tiger shark skins, love the fit, and the pattern looked badass underwater! But after the first dive I noticed the seams were coming apart on the calf area of the right leg. I called the company, and they said they would repair the defect.
This One Was The First One That I Purchased. Robin it the Size I should Order Right On The Mark. They Fit a Little Tight On The First Wear. It Gets Better From There. I was Amazed at The Vibrancy of The Prints, They Are True To Life. These Suit Are The Greatest Thing Going.
I greatly enjoyed this skin...the print is perfect, and I was wearing it with a recent tiger shark encounter! The foot and hand cut-outs are perfect for wear under booties and gloves, if necessary. I do wish the material was a little more stretchy, as I need to have someone available to peel this off my shoulders after a dive!
